CHMY 211 Elements of Organic Chemistry serves as the prerequisite for additional Chemistry courses, which are required in the Biotechnology Degree, Animal Systems Option.  Graduate departments at some universities require that students have one year of organic Chemistry.  Therefore, students potentially interested in graduate school can take the CHMY 321/CHMY 323 series of organic Chemistry during their sophomore year.


If one of these is used as a departmental requirement, then it cannot count as elective credits.

A minimum of 120 credits is required for graduation; 42 of these credits must be in courses numbered 300 or above.
